Table 3 Deployment duration and number of exposures for the successful deployments of the prototype tag

From: An animal-borne active acoustic tag for minimally invasive behavioral response studies on marine mammals

Seal Exposure interval (h) Number of exposures received Exposures by dive stage
Descent Bottom phase Ascent Surface
Deep Shallow Deep Shallow Deep Shallow
G5449 3 6 2 1 1 2
G5520 3 2 1 1

G6651 3 24 7 1 1 3 7 1 4
  1. The number of exposures was dependent on the success of the tag and the length of the deployment. Exposures during descent, bottom phase, and ascent are the subset of exposures used for analysis in each respective phase, split by shallow (<100 m) and deep (>100 m) exposures. Surface exposures were excluded from analysis
